As we previously reported, Martin posted a photo on social media last month of a shotgun and ammunition and then called out former teammates Mike Pouncey and Richie Incognito. Furthermore, the report states there is now a warrant issued for Martin's arrest.

Martin was charged with four counts of making criminal threats and one count of possessing a loaded firearm.

The warrant stems from a February 23 incident after an Instagram post on his account with a photo of a shotgun and several shells tagged his former high school, the Miami Dolphins and ex-Dolphins teammates Mike Pouncey and Richie Incognito. Martin also tagged Harvard-Westlake High School, a place where Martin graduated in 2008 before playing college football at Stanford.

The L.A. County D.A. hit Martin with 5 charges ... The post was made eight days after a gunman killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. A few short years ago he was a young National Football League player with a very bright future. Incognito was eventually suspended by the Dolphins when a threatening voicemail surfaced, where Incognito called Martin a "half-n****r piece of shit", threatened to slap Martin's mother across the face and even uttered a death threat against Martin. It also found Martin was "taunted on a persistent basis with sexually explicit remarks about his sister and his mother and at times ridiculed with racial insults and other offensive comments".
